[advice] additional JS course before proceeding?

Hi guys :slight_smile:
I’m currently finishing JS section of tutorial (Object Oriented and Functional Programming), but still I don’t feel very comfortable when operating JS. Should I take break on FCC and search other JS learning resource before proceeding to Basic Algorithm Scripting? What to you think?

Just jump into the algorithm scripting, getting involved with the problems will be a better learning experience than just more javascript tutorials, examples, resources etc in my opinion.

Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

You learn programming by doing. I always say, “you can’t learn to swim without swallowing a little pool water.” You can read all the books on swimming theory you want, but until you jump in the pool and almost drown a few times, you’re not going to really learn.

Dive in, make mistakes. Don’t be afraid. Sure, pick up a book from the library, look at some web pages, watch some youtube video. But you’ve got some momentum going on FCC, don’t lose that. By all means, use some other resources while you move forward, but don’t stop.

If you get stuck, do a google search. If you don’t find what you want, check with us. That’s why we’re here. If this were easy, there would be no need for FCC or the forum.
